[quote:vi2os6iy]Film Studies at UCC has the pleasure of welcoming filmmaker Lenny Abrahamson to University College Cork. The highly acclaimed and multi-award winning director of Adam and Paul and Garage, will visit UCC on Monday March 22 for a screening of Garage (starring Pat Shortt) in Boole 1 at 17.00,
to be followed by a Q & A session with Mr Abrahamson. [/quote:vi2os6iy]
[quote:vi2os6iy]Lenny Abrahamsonâ€™s artistic success and critical recognition began with his 1991 short film 3 Joes which won the Best Short Film Award at the Galway Film Fleadh that year. Having moved to California to begin a Doctoral Thesis in Philosophy, this commendation enticed him back to Ireland where he worked for a number of years on television commercials. He showed in his first feature length production Adam and Paul (2004), a collaboration with screenwriter Mark Oâ€™Halloran, incredible sensitivity to the power of the medium. Adam and Paul received enormous national and international attention, winning, among other awards, the Grand Prix at the Sophia International Film Festival, the Evening Standard British Film Award, and the Best Director prize at home at the Irish Film and Television Awards (IFTAs). Abrahamson followed this success with Garage, his second collaboration with Oâ€™Halloran, which was awarded with similar enthusiasm among audiences, reviewers, critics and festival judges. It collected the prestigious ConfÃ©dÃ©ration Internationale des CinÃ©mas dâ€™Art et dâ€™Essai (CICAE) Award in Cannes in 2007, won two Best Film Awards in the Torino Film Festival, and scooped the boards back home at the 2008 IFTAs.

[quote:vi2os6iy]The event in UCC on Monday March 22 is free and open to the public. All are welcome to attend what will be an entertaining and fascinating look into the artistic project and philosophy of one of Irelandâ€™s most interesting and innovative directors.[/quote:vi2os6iy]March 23, 2010 at 12:52 pm #6102inkyMember

I went along to the Garage Screening.
Lenny Abrahamson was a gent, he hung around for a good while answering questions and was very informative.
